Mail carriers ‘Stamp Out Hunger' in support of food banks


PITTSBURGH - The National Association of Letter Carriers collected non-perishable food while mail was delivered on Saturday.

The annual Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive took place across the country, with donations in the Pittsburgh area benefiting the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Households were asked to place their non-perishable food donations in a bag or box by their mailboxes. Mail carriers and volunteers collected the food and delivered it to local food pantries.

More than 74 million pounds of food were collected nationwide during the 2013 drive.
